We are excited to announce that Kaizen is now offering red and near-infrared light therapy!
What Is It?
Red/Near Infrared Light is a treatment that is proven to aid skin and muscle recovery, joint pain, and increase energy levels at a cellular level. Essentially, shining a specific wavelength of light on problem areas can help with recovery from injury, surgery, or just improve energy levels and even your skin.
How does it work?
With red light therapy, you expose your skin to a light panel that can be powered to different wavelengths. Each different wavelength targets and solves different problems. Red light can penetrate to the depth of the skin promoting collagen production and healing wounds. Near infrared light is able to target deeper into tissue to successfully target deeper wounds including joint and muscle pains.
This therapy technique is a completely natural process. It exposes the skin to healthy levels of light that are not harmful to the human body. Infrared light cannot be seen by the human eye, and the physical effect you can feel during therapy is a small amount of heat on your skin. Because of this, there is almost no risk of harm or side effects unless you are overdoing it.
So the question you may be asking yourself is why should I try it? There are a multitude of reasons really. If nothing that you have tried in the past has worked, this may be for you. If you have seen relief but not quite to the level you were hoping for, red light therapy may be for you too. Many patients have found a sense of relaxation during treatment as well as a release of muscle and joint pain.
How can I get started?
If you are not already a patient, schedule a free 30 minute discovery call where we can get to know you, the problems that you are experiencing, and what your goals are.
From there, if you are a good candidate for this treatment, we will get you scheduled an appointment. We typically couple red/near-infrared light therapy with other modalities such as trigger point dry needling, cupping, scraping or body tempering.
After your initial appointment you can continue with single visits or we offer packages of 5, 10 or 20 visits. We also offer monthly memberships - a great way to maintain all of your gains and continue to be healthy and active for life.
If you are already a patient at Kaizen and you are currently on a treatment program, talk to Dr. Ladd to see if red/near-light therapy is a good option you.
